republican americans are expecting mitt romney to go out there and do something and i don't know whether that as even possible right now. the first debate means everything. the whole world is watching this thing. this is a big, big debate on wednesday night. this is much bigger than the mccain-obama debate. >> today mitt romney traveled from boston to colorado where the debate will be held as a major player in romney's fund raiser confirmed to fox business that a few new york donors have backed away from financial commitments to the romney campaign and instead said they will spend their money to help the republicans hold on to the house of representatives and pick up seats in the senate. the debates will be very important, said one person with knowledge of the matter. if romney does well, that money could come back. >>> new jersey's governor, chris christie the current front runner for the presidential nomination 2016 has decided his job is to state the obvious. >> it's a huge night. we've had a bad couple of weeks and we want to turn this around and if you want to turn it around

the divide and conquer mentality. mitt romney cares deeply about the american people. he cares deeply about the future of this country and our kids and grandkids. that's way can bring forward in this debate because it will be unfiltered. it won't be split and cut by the media or by whoever is slicing and diesing any recorded messages that have been done before. this is an unfiltered opportunity for governor romney to lay out his optimistic and upbeat plan for the american people and for our great country. that's why i'm so excited about tomorrow night. >> let me ask you about something dave gertz wrote in "the new york times" today. he suggested an opening statement for mitt romney. let me read part of it for you. i'm a nonideological guy running in an ideological age and i'm pretending to be more of an ideologue. i ended up running myself down. it hasn't worked. i'm behind. i decided to run the last month of this campaign as myself. there has been a criticism that he has gone from being a moderate to a conservative. has he become too conservative for the general electorate, and do yo

what they found. under mitt romney 95% of americans making under $200,000 would have a tax increase averaging $2,000 while the wealthiest americans would see tax cuts of up to $86,000 per year. and his claim that he can give the wealthy those tax breaks and still close the deficit, that claim is mathematically impossible according to the tax policy center. romney's fuzzy math has put his surrogates in a bit of a tough spot. here is paul ryan trying to explain the impossible on fox us in yesterday. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away deductions. and we'll get to that. the first half lowering the tax rates does that cost $5 trillion -- >> no. >> you haven't given me the math. >> oh, it would take me too long to go through the math. >> come on i don't have the time to tell you how the math works. then he follows that awkward statement with another statement today. >> i like chris. i didn't want to get into all of any math of this because everybody would start changing the channel. >> jennifer: kind of funny. i isn't know
